Trawling the news today I discovered an interesting story detailing how video games can now be played without a games console. OnLive, a video game service hosted via the cloud, are to bring one hundred and fifty games to the UK when it launches the service – but what will this mean for us?

It seems that technology has proven itself to be useful once again as gamers succeed where scientists failed, solving in just a matter of weeks, a problem that troubled scientists for more than a decade.
The gamers were called in after scientists were unable to determine the
structure of a retrovirus enzyme. The enzyme belongs to a class known as
retroviral proteases and has a vital role in the development and
maturing of the AIDS virus.
When Scientists automated methods
failed to generate a result, Dr. Firas Khatib, a researcher at the
University of Washington's Department of Biology, explained that they
decided "to see if human intuition could succeed".

As you likely have heard, what with it being all over the news, the Microsoft's new Kinect motion controller was released earlier this week. However, before you go rushing out to buy one, you probably want to ensure that it's worth the investment. £130 is a rather large investment for an accessory for your gaming console, after all. I mean, with that much money, you could purchase a new clothes dryer from Asda. So, with options like those on the table, how do you choose where to spend your money? That's where Savoo comes in.

As Savoo's resident tech blogger, I spent much of the morning trying to decide whether I wanted to discuss the Queen recently joining Facebook, or last night's launch of Call of Duty Black Ops. I ultimately decided to go with Call of Duty for several reasons.
1. Her Majesty won't be my friend.
2. She won't let me poke her.
That said, the launch of Call of Duty has some rather large expectations to live up to. Its predecessor, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is the all-time record holder for the most successful entertainment launch, earning over £242.4m in its first day of sales and outpacing everything from films to books to music albums.
Though we're not quite yet into December, it's probably about time to start thinking about what gifts you're going to pick up for your friends and family. If you're anything like most other people, coming up with presents for everyone in your life is probably an unnecessarily difficult task. At least, it is for me somewhere near 90% of the time.
But, if you've got a tech nerd in your life, then you're in luck. For the next couple of weeks, I'll be putting together lists of the hottest products in gaming and tech for every budget. This week, you'll find some of the best things you can buy for £50 and under. It might be a bit hard finding products that fall within this range because, let's face it, gadgets are an expensive hobby. Still, if you know where to look, you'll find plenty of products that any tech geek would be glad to have.

Technology and Gaming
Although the majority of the talk surrounding Apple as of late has been centred on the iPhone 4's various antenna issues, the company was, at least for a day, allowed a bit of reprieve from the public as they handed out free t-shirts to customers on August 7th. At the company's new flagship store in Covent Garden, London, thousands of people stood in queue to be among the select few who would receive a shirt commemorating the store's opening date and location.
While even the most ardent Apple supporters would admit that the free
shirts lack the flash of some of the company's more recent products
like the iPad and the aforementioned iPhone 4, many claimed that the
appeal of the shirts were due more to their limited numbers.
